The Early Years, the influential London-based krautock-inspired four-piece, have reformed and announced their first live show and new material in over three years.

They play a one-off show at CAMP Basement in London on November 2. Tickets are on sale from Monday (September 19).

A single featuring new songs 'Complicity' and 'Fallen Star' will be available on limited-edition vinyl at the show and then released digitally the following week (November 7).

The Early Years released their self-titled debut album in 2006, and followed it with a handful of EPs and singles and a number of incendiary live performances, before various other distractions put the group on hold.

However, in that short time, they were lauded by Brian Eno – who compared drummer Phil Raines to the late, great Klaus Dinger of krautrock pioneers Neu! – and The Horrors, whose frontman Faris Badwan described them as "a band worth listening to" in the pages of NME, just after his band's second album 'Primary Colours' – a record which shared The Early Years' inspirations of krautrock and Spacemen 3 – had come out.
